Oh yeah, things are really new third time around...

If you look back (I know, why should you?) you'd see that I was pretty positive about the band but wanted to hear them turn their obvious talents to something original. Sam bonk, who as the band's drummer has a vested interest in promoting them, has not as yet addressed this point. Maybe they're just happy to ride on the Grateful Dead's coattails and be just another cover band. OK, good luck to them, but with ready access to the real thing, why should I bother? A couple of killer reappraisals of GD songs within the context of a solid setlist of their own material would be much more impressive.

I agree with Rob. The Grateful Dead spent thirty years playing the same songs over and over. That was cool though, because it was their thing, and it belongs to them forever.

But don't start a new band just to imitate that style, and on top of that with all the exact same songs...and on top of that, on the one website where anyone who wants to can hear all the hundreds of times the GD played all those same songs, as they were meant to be played...That's just lame. The Maykers guy was bad enough.

(I am starting to think that Sam Bonk and the Maykers promoter are actually one and the same troll, probably coming straight from the G.N.A.A. [do not attempt to learn anything about the gnaa, you will get a computer virus 99% guaranteed])

Anyway I guess we are all cursed to endure cover bands. But hey all you cover band players out there: you know you guys would feel better about yourselves if you wrote and played at least mostly your own songs. So I encourage you. Let this be your kick in the pants.
